Question description

Gender Reassignment Issues  400 - 500 words


This week, we have discussed issues related to gender and sexuality. You should have some idea of the ways that both biology and society shape our expectations and views of both males and females. Sometimes, however, the issue is not so clear-cut. If you are not familiar with the terms "hermaphrodite" or "intersex," I suggest that you look them up before participating in this week's discussion. Then link to and read the following account: I also have attached it.

This is obviously a very tragic case on many levels.

1.) What does this case tell you about the power of biology?

2.) Does it support or refute Dr. Money's (and others') apparent view that children are a "blank slate," and that they can successfully transition from one sex to another if it is done early enough in childhood?

3.) Given what happened to David Reimer, what would be your opinion now on whether "sex reassignment surgery" should be done on infants or young children who are born with an intersex condition? Support your argument with empirical research findings.
